Star bird flies through, unseen!
A nice afternoon walk with Susan and (wait for it) Mrs Chaz! But all three of us missed the Star bird, a fly-through by a Common Redshank, heard calling as we headed up the mineral line. As far as I know that is a first site record this year (unless you know different)?
Only one Common Tern and two Greylag on the Mere, still two Gadwall on the Marsh and as Kev said yesterday, both Oystercatchers feeding on the paddocks. Several Reed Warbler were singing and there was at least one Sedge Warbler, singing from the main Swag.
Not a lot else, still waiting for the Phalarope or similar end of season treat (he said hopefully).
